Featured Reviews for Kailua, HI Architects and Building Designers

Daniel Ruark, Architect
Kailua, HI Architects and Building Designers
23 October 2016
“Aaron Green could not have asked for a more worthy heir than Daniel Ruark, just as Frank Lloyd Wright could not have asked for a more worthy heir than Aaron Green. In 2013, I purchased a small residence on the Stanford campus designed by Aaron Green, a real gem of a house that had an outdoor tool shed in the carport area. I consulted Ruark about transforming the shed into a master bathroom that would incorporate into the main house without compromising or adding to the main plan. Ruark produced an ingenious, exquisite design, down to the last detail, and oversaw the construction, which entailed considerable challenges. The result is a stunning master bathroom that blends seamlessly into the unique architecture and color tones of the house. Daniel Ruark's professionalism, honesty, and devotion to his work are exemplary. He is a a master artist of organic architecture. Aaron Green recognized this, and the work Ruark did for me confirms it.”

“We hired Envision Design Build to help us design our kitchen remodel in conjunction with a large sliding glass door. We knew we wanted to open up the kitchen, add an island and create an indoor/outdoor feel and accessibility to the backyard patio. Envision took the time to create a plan that not only worked well within the space, but also worked best for our family. The project came out better than we could have imagined! Many thanks Gazelle & Parker!”
Kelso Architects
Kailua, HI Architects and Building Designers

“Kelsos were a pleasure to work with. I took them my ideas which proved to be just a bit naive in terms of cost and engineering. They were able to take my ideas for what my living spaces and view should be and fit it on to a challenging hillside. When I got Lisa to measure my truck after the garage was all laid out, the truck was a bit long. After suggesting that I get a smaller truck, they jumped in and designed around my longish truck. Throughout the initial design, cost engineering phase and final construction they were attentive and helpful. They worked very well with Kula Construction. I have been in the house for several years now and I love the design. It all works! I would use them again.”
Hawaii Island Architects, LLC
Kailua, HI Architects and Building Designers
22 July 2014
“We purchased a property on the Big Island of Hawaii and wanted an architect local to that area to design our home and assist in its construction as we were not as familiar with the issues that can arise in building in that area since we live in Washington State. We have received excellent service from the firm even before we had the company on contract. We are still in the later design phases, but already have greatly benefited in the design of our home to accommodate the specific climate and other environmental issues associated with building in Hawaii. The firm has the right contacts for all the other necessary engineering and construction services that will be needed in the design, permitting and construction of our home. We find Roger Brasel (principal of the firm) to be very easy to work with. So, this review is relative to the design of our home and does not cover the construction phase.”

“I had a great time with John at Lapis Design Partners. He worked with me from the very first meeting to the final walk through process of my house located at Kahala neighborhood in Honolulu. He spent a great deal of his time into this project since I was not in full time residence during the process. We communicate over email, phone conversation and fax very intensively. He and his partner, Susan as a professional long-time interior designer always respected my views and wishes toward this dream house. I enjoyed the relationship with John during the process and appreciated very much for his professionalism as an architect and his responsiveness to the job. The results came much more than my expectations. We received one of AIA Honolulu awards. Most importantly, my time during the process was enjoyable ! Highly recommended.”

“I used Jeff for a complete renovation of my home. Adding an architect to my team was actually the last component as I thought I could get away without one. Good thing I did engage Jeff because I can't imagine what the project would have looked like had he not been involved. Jeff's design ideas and detailed drawings were certainly key to having my project completed on time and on budget, in addition to having a beautiful finished product. In addition, Jeff worked some magic and was able to get permitting in less than half the time it usually takes. Jeff was flexible, creative, detailed, organized and timely. He communicates well and was responsive to all my requests. All important criteria for having a build go smoothly. I will definitely engage Jeff again if I can find another worthwhile project.

“We had a great experience with Phillip White, Laura Ayers and staff when building our new home in Manoa. They are professional, friendly, responsive to our needs as well as giving us superb ideas for the creation of our new home. They worked as a positive team, that really got along on all levels. Their working environment made us feel comfortable and welcome. We highly recommend them for any new clients/projects.”
William J. Benjamin, AIA | Lux Homes Hawaii
Kailua, HI Architects and Building Designers
30 January 2014
“Bill Benjamin is brilliant when working with clients. He is the only architect in Honolulu who will fully collaborate with clients and not impose his artistic views as is the case with many other local architects. He is also highly intelligent and can solve many problems of design and construction that other architects have problems with.”

“Architectural/Design We hired Michael and Lani after seeing the detail of their work and meeting them in person to make sure that they were a good fit for us not only in their professional capacity but also a great energetic match for the vision that we had for the project. Our experience with them has surpassed our expectations, They are true professionals, artists and work in a world of creative playfulness that has helped us to create a house that has surpassed our expectations.”

“Archipelago did an outstanding job designing our home. From the beginning of the planning, they were on top of things every step of the way. Their dedication, attention to detail and follow through far exceeded our expectations. They were worth every dime. I most strongly recommend their work. ”
